In Memory of Robin Williams
News of the suicide death of Robin Williams on Monday 11 Aug 2014 came late to me by a few days as I was busy engrossed with some paper work. Strangely it had to come while I was at the home of another father whom I had mentioned about in a previous post on the topic of suicide.

I am not a therapist or other mental health professional - only someone who knows what it is like to be in pain." Click here to view
